Okay, this is probably a silly question, but I can't seem to think past it. I'm working on the Foliage Hat from Knitty: http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATTfoliage.html
Under "Hat Body," it says:
Work all sts onto larger circular needle as follows:
Next Round: [K to last st on needle, k this st together with first st of next needle] 4 times. The last st of the round will be worked together with the first st of the round. Place a st marker after this st to indicate beginning of round.
64 sts remain for Version 1, 96 sts remain for Version 2.
So here's my question: on the first round, the first and last stitches are worked together - does that then become the first or the last stitch of the next round? It sounds like it becomes the last (hence the advice as to where to place the marker...) Am I right? The decreases are screwing with the nice cross-shaped seam on the top of the hat - one of them kind of trails off into this uneven "V" shape, which doesn't happen in the picture.
Ideas? And thank you! This pattern is easy but interesting, and the Malabrigo yarn is heaven to work with!
